The photographic image is a great way to raise awareness around topics you are passionate about. Lucky for fungi they are very photogenic and hopefully sharing their beauty will help conserve and have people appreciate their important role in our ecosystems and culture. Below is a selection of some of my favourite Tasmanian fungi photos taken in wet schlerophyll forest on my 9 acre property in southern Tasmania.  The equipment used is a bottom of the range digital Nikon D40x camera accompanied by an original model Nikon 105mm AF macro lense.

All images are taken with natural lighting, with the aid of a tripod and remote shutter release. 

Post production: Some images are created using image stacking, and basic retouching is applied (tonality, colour and sharpening) in Photoshop with an Eizo colour calibrated monitor.

My aim is for these images to help encourage your interest in our environment and fungi!

Working alongside other volunteers  to create an innovative community garden project incorporating literacy, environmental sustainability and community art. Click here to read more
